Embattled Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit absolute rock bottom on Tuesday, comparing what’s taking place at America’s southern border to the Holocaust.

Again, the Holocaust.

Once again Democratic Socialist member of Congress Alexandra Ocasio Cortez has demonstrated she is either an imbecile or speaks without doing any research. Her latest idiotic rant accuses the Trump administration of operating concentration camps. According to the dim-witted Democrat:

The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. And if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t— I got nothing— I like, we can have, ok, whatever. I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that we should not— that ‘never again’ means something, and that the fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it. This week, children, immigrant children were moved to the same internment camps where the Japanese were held in the early, in the earlier 20th century. And this is, this is not even about a crisis for, this is not just about the immigrant communities being held in concentration camps being a crisis, this is a crisis for ourselves. This is a crisis on if America will remain America in its actual principles and values, or if we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency. And so I think that that is, you know, I don’t use those words lightly, I don’t use those words to just throw bombs, I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. And a presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist. (video embedded below).

She doubled down on her idiocy today:

Obviously, AOC is trying to recover from her original foolishness. While not all concentration camps are death camps, she used the term “never again,” which was a direct reference to the Holocaust. The concentration camps used for Hitler’s final solution were death camps. And I am not saying that as a shrieking Republican but as a Jew with family members who suffered through the Holocaust.

What the asinine Alexandria was dripping stupidity about was Health and Human Services plan to use Fort Sill, an Army base in Oklahoma to hold growing numbers of immigrant children in its custody after running out of space at government shelters. Health and Human Services said in a statement that it has taken about 40,900 children into custody through April 30. That’s a 57% increase from last year, which is a rate on-pace to surpass the record figures in 2016 when 59,171 minors were taken into custody.

In its 150-year-history Fort Sill has operated continuously it is not being re-opened as some liberals have claimed. It was a POW camp during the Indian Wars (Geronimo was there), and home to the 1st Balloon Company. Post Field at Fort Sill is the oldest continually operating airfield in the U.S. Army. It is arguably the birthplace of US combat aviation, it was the home of The Army Ground Forces Air Training School, and still trains our military. A part of Fort Sill was indeed used as an internment camp. But it was also used to house unaccompanied minors in 2014 during the Obama administration. Per the Navy Times

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan approved the request from HHS to house up to 5,000 unaccompanied children, and the request extends through Sept. 30. The temporary facilities could be opened and stay open through Sept. 30.

This marks the second time in five years that Fort Sill has been called on in this type of effort. Fort Sill was used to temporarily house nearly 2,000 unaccompanied immigrant children in 2014 for about two months because of a migration surge at that time.

Navy Times also explains that the Kids will be housed in “hard-sided structures, with semi-permanent, soft-sided structures used for support operations.” They won’t be staying in tents as the Japanese-Americans were forced to live in during WWII.

Diplomats Speak On White House Transcript Of Ukraine Call, Say It Was ‘Substantively Correct’

Published

A pair of career diplomats who were highly involved in the crafting of U.S. policy in Ukraine have given testimony about President Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky which was transcribed and released by the White House, saying it was “substantively correct.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The transcript of the call, which is at the center of the Democrats’ impeachment investigation, shows no explicit quid pro quo between Trump and Zelensky but does show Trump pressuring Zelensky to investigate corruption allegations into 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden. Trump has said the call was “perfect” and decried the impeachment process as “the greatest political witch hunt in history.” During their public hearing on Tuesday, Jennifer Williams, a foreign service aide detailed to Vice President Mike Pence’s office, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the top Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council, were both asked about the transcript by the House Intelligence Committee. “I didn’t take a word-for-word accounting. When I first saw the publicly released version, it looked substantively correct to me,” Williams said when asked whether the transcript was “complete and accurate.” “I certainly would describe it as substantively correct,” Vindman agreed, adding that it was “correct” and that he called it “very accurate” during his closed-door testimony. https://youtu.be/MEB-s2I205k Kurt Volker, who served as the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a former NSC aide, will also be giving testimony during the impeachment inquiry to be held on Tuesday. Despite saying the Trump transcript was “substantively correct,” Vindman spoke with House investigators during his private deposition and alleged the White House omitted some important words and phrases.

Dem Lawmaker Weighs In On Trump, Says, ‘I’d Like To Impeach The Bas**** Right Now’

Published

on

It seems that Rep. Dina Titus isn’t a big fan of President Trump, referring to him as a “bas****” during a rather incendiary speech delivered at a Democratic Party event in Las Vegas. Titus, a Nevada Democrat, was such a rousing success with her anti-Trump rhetoric that chants of “Dina! Dina!” broke out in the crowd. Here’s more from The Washington Times: “You have heard me say how many times that this is the most important election of your lifetime? Well, this time I really, really, really mean it, because it is,” the congresswoman told the crowd, according to a video promoted by the Republican National Committee. “The heart and soul of our nation is on the ballot, and it’s going to be up to you all,” she said. “That’s why our caucus is so important. It’s the first step to getting this con artist out of the White House. “You know, frankly, I think the House is going to do it, and I’d like to impeach the bastard right now,” she said, drawing a wave of cheers. Titus went on to state that the Senate would not probably impeach the president, so the Democratic Party needed to be prepared to “take him out” in November of 2020. When speaking with reporters later on in the evening, Titus stated she was “caught up in the moment” when she called Trump a “bas****.” “Well, I guess I just don’t have very much respect for this president,” Titus told a local CBS affiliate. “I don’t have respect for his moral standards. I think he doesn’t have any knowledge of history, he’s very anti-intellectual, he’s abandoned or insulted our allies, he certainly doesn’t work well with Congress. “That was just the first term that came to the top of my head,” she continued.
